FLIGHT TO IRAQ

REF: STATE 126770

1. (SBU) On May 14, A/PolCouns delivered reftel points to
Ayman Aimiri, Deputy Director of the MFA's IO Department.
Aamiri said that he was unfamiliar with AIR SERV's request
and had not received any message asking for instructions from
Jordan's Mission in New York on this case. A/PolCouns
underlined the urgency and importance of AIR SERV's
humanitarian flights to the USG and requested Aamiri to
instruct Jordan's Mission in New York to submit the request
for authorization today, May 14. Aamiri promised he would do
that and did not expect there to be a problem. Aamiri also
provided his home and cell phone numbers to A/PolCouns to
convey to AIR SERV's Amman rep, Ms. Susan MacGregor (who had
also contacted the Embassy May 14 on the same issue).
A/PolCouns later spoke with Ms. MacGregor again and verified
that she had provided Aamiri with details relating to AIR
SERV's flights from Amman.
